This link might help you. Also use google to search it for pet stores who sell them.

Every vet PenG I've seen requires refrigeration- not a good choice for SHTF. I used to have a small dorm room ref in the barn for Pen G and beer. I good some strange looks from a visitor who wondered if the PenG was for VD.

I think there are some crystalized human products that you have to reconstitute, kind of like rocephrin (sp?)

As a former vet tech. Talk to your vet about the meds and try to get a pre caculated dose for your animal. Also ask if you get some 1CC syringes along with some others ones. I have a crash for my dog/ferrets. It has a assortment of diff. gage needles, iv bag and hookup, vet wrap which works for people to, and couple of other things.

I don't think animals are the OP's primary concern.

several of the newer ones are toxic to humans or unapproved animals

Keep it simple. Just get you basic anti-biotics.

Get a doctors med. book they sell for $25.00 and cross check the name of the drugs and check dosages as well. If they are the same they can be used in humans if not it may be dangerous to use in humans
